* GenreSavvy: The [=SEALs=] show signs of this. [[spoiler: After learning that the rebels were able to track them across the jungle at night, they quickly deduce that someone is transmitting their location. They then wonder ''why'' someone would bother to do this. After learning that there is in fact a mole, they demand to know why someone would care that much about a group of refugees.]]
